campaign near englewood, colorado. so, jim, seven states tharks is one busy day for romney and ryan. did they generate any momentum today; do you think? >> we're going to have to wait and see, don. if you look at those battleground state polls that have come out in recent days, it doesn't appear that that surge of momentum may have stalled with the arrival of super storm sandy. we'll just have to wait and see on election day, don. if you wait and look at all of these battleground states, it is very cloesz when it comes to the president and mitt romney. we are leaving now and on our way to a rally in englewood, colorado. it will be his final stop here in this battleground state. and, also, john, his final western stop of campaign 2012. we've been hearing him talk nostalgically all day long. he was talking about the long days and the short nights and how his campaign is almost there. it's almost until election day. but really, what he's been doing is delivering his closing argument. talking about what he calls real change for the country. he's been seizing that unemployment data saying tha
introduced as we speak. jim acosta there following mitt romney. so obviously today the tone changes somewhat for the governor but what can we expect to hear? >> reporter: i think we're getting a preview of that right now. jeb bush is on stage. marco rubio was at the podium and the florida governor, marco rubio steered clear of attacks on president obama. jeb bush on stage right now, he made a very interesting comment a few moments ago about storm response. he said it's the state and local response that really matters, not clear whether or not that was a dig at the president and the federal response that's going on and attention paid to the federal response. really, that'ses a close as either that they have come going after president obama in this event and lines up from what i heard of a top romney adviser this morning that the gop nominee striking a positive tone on the campaign trail. we heard mario rubio. i think the closest he got was talking about the state of economy saying this doesn't have to be the new normal and seeing right now is maybe the new normal of the campaign at least for

-- >> jim clancy is also with cnn. jim is in that area right now. jim, is there a sense that the danger has passed? >> reporter: there's a sense that they faced down the destruction that has been caused. they've now seen those images that you showed, you saw the faces of those evacuees, what they've been through. there are still dangers looming out there, a long way to go. the gas lines you were talking about are still a challenge in some areas. some residents challenging why they haven't been cut off much earlier. and there's hopes that that can be done today. not as easy as it sounds. gaining access to where they can cut off these lines still will leave some of those lines pressurized. there's still a potential threat there. of course, before they can reenergize any of the electric lines in some of these communities, they have to ensure that job is done, carol. otherwise, it could ignite new fires. there's one of the major risks that remains. there are still some people that are holding out, some elderly with their pets, but they're about to give it up. there's no electricity. there's no

on the important battleground states, all of them. and jim avalon is in virginia, a state that president obama won four years ago, and a state mitt romney would really love to have in his column ten days from now. everybody would love to have every single state in their column. so why is virginia -- first of all, how are you doing? why is virginia so important to the election? >> reporter: i'm doing great, we'll talk to students at washington university in just a bit. virginia is one of the three big swing states, florida, virginia, ohio, the path of the battleground bus that we have been on. virginia is fascinating, because president obama was the first democrat to win it since lyndon johnson, in 1964. the population is growing, more diverse now. now the population growth, frankly well to the north of virginia was to his benefit in 2008. right now, the economy here in virginia, pretty good compared to the rest of the country, 8% national. so this is a place democrats hope they could win again. it is tight, they have a very competitive senate race. every vote counts. it is really about the ground
